The WWE Universe were left baffled this week when it was made apparent that NXT Diva Blue Pant's contract with the up and coming brand had come to an end and WWE were not ready to offer her a new one.
Blue Pants had been a part of NXT for a few months but the height of her fame came when she managed The Vaudevillians at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn a few weeks ago.
The relatively unknown superstar had been over with the crowd since her debut and it made little sense for WWE to release what could have been a successful Diva, but finally some new information has come to light.

It has been revealed by several sources that there was a lot more to the story than any backstage heat that Leva Bates was receiving.
Wrestlinginc.com reported that: “Blue Pants didn’t get the heat because of how over she was, but because there was a feeling that she did not appreciate the spot she had. She was often seen on her phone at and during NXT TV tapings, apparently not paying attention to what was going on.”
“There was also an incident during SummerSlam weekend in Brooklyn where Blue Pants became intoxicated in public. Following the SummerSlam pay-per-view, Blue Pants reportedly drank too much at an outing and acted highly inappropriate.
"There were WWE Corporate employees from Stamford at the gathering and her behavior did not go over well. This incident led to her missing the flight back to Florida the next morning with the rest of the crew.”
This doesn't sound like the kind of behavior that WWE would allow any of their superstars to get away with and it doesn't seem like the appropriate thing to do when you are trying to climb up in the business.
As before, the future for the former crowd favourite still seems undetermined. Since her contract has now come to an end, it means that she can now go and work for any company she likes, knowing that her stint in NXT will get her some decent bookings.
If these reports are to be believed then hopefully she has learnt her lesson and if WWE look to use her again in the future, she won't do anything like that again.
